In this video, staff author Jess Stratton shows users how to add the most often used tools to a new Ribbon tab and group. She'll also demonstrate how to add shortcuts to the Quick Access toolbar at the very top of the screen.
- [Jess] My name is Jess Stratton, and welcome…to PowerPoint Tips Weekly.…If you find yourself always using the same tools…over and over again, you can save yourself…a few mouse clicks by adding a new tab to the ribbon,…or the Quick Access Toolbar up here…on the top left-hand side of the screen.…To add a tool to the ribbon, click File.…All the way down at the bottom click Options,…and then click Customize Ribbon.…On the left-hand side are all the available tools…you have to choose from.…
And on the right-hand side is the way…the current ribbon is setup.…You can see that they're organized by tabs.…For example here's the Home tab,…and here's the groups within that tab.…Without having to close this dialog…I can see that there's a Clipboard group,…a Slides group, Font, Paragraph, Drawing, and Editing.…On the left-hand side here's the Home ribbon tab.…Here's the Clipboard group, here's the Slides group,…and all the way on the right-hand side is the Editing group.…You can see all the tools within that group.…
In fact you can see them in the dialog box…
